This system is visually similar to curtain walling and compares favourably in terms of both performance and cost effectiveness.

Depending on the span required, or merely for the internal effect, different depths of box section glazing bars are used to meet your requirements.

Our Skyline Box type glazing bar range has been developed to give specifiers an alternative to traditional internal and external stalked glazing bars. The low profile external aluminium capping offers a smart appearance to the external facade of the patent glazing system.

As the majority of the glazing bar resides permanently on the inside of the building, it therefore maintains a higher temperature. Consequently, this system provides a lower thermal transmittance than an external stalked glazing bar where a wider surface area is in contact with external elements.

A thermal break is added to reduce the effects of cold bridging and ensure compliance with current building regulations.

The Skyline Box glazing system is suitable for double glazed applications where compliance with Building Regulations Document L are a requirement but is also popular for single glazed applications such as feature canopies as can be seen on the photo examlpes at the top of this page. When used with double glazing and thermal breaks this system is capable of providing an overall U Value of approximately 1.8W/ m²K.

PLEASE NOTE
Maximum glazing bar spans are for guidance only. We will select the appropriate glazing bar for each contract. Spans are dependent upon the pitch of glazing, glazing bar centres, building shape, wind load, snow load, dead load and maintenance load.
